The thymus gland is one of the points of interaction between the endocrine, neural and immune systems (see Chapter 13). 6 THE HEART As well as its function as a pump for the blood, the heart is an endocrine gland. Granular cells in the heart muscle secrete a hormone called atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) which regulates blood pressure, blood volume and the excretion of water, sodium and potassium through its actions on the kidneys and adrenal glands (Cantin and Genest, 1986). ANF also acts as a neuropeptide in the brain, where it regulates salt and water intake, heart rate and vasopressin secretion (Quirion, 1988).
